In my RIGHT mind – God is good!

Updated on November 23, 2010

By Jewel Tyler

I am sitting here this Tuesday afternoon enjoying my praise and worship music in my right mind in my home.  I say in my right mind because Friday of last week I was admitted to the hospital.  I had no idea what was going on with my flesh.  I could not even remember my phone number; tears streamed down my face as I began to realize I was losing the smallest things that I took for granted as everyday knowledge. A friend and Sister in Christ prayed over me and encouraged me everything was going to be okay.

I had lost feeling down the left side of my body (my arm and my leg) I had shooting pains going down my spine; blood pressure spiking to very high levels.  Which is extremely rare for me, I have very low blood pressure.  Everything that occurred on Friday is sort of a blur to me.  But thanks be to God on Saturday!!!! I was able to get up out of that hospital bed.  I asked my nurse to please walk with me around my floor.  We did about four rounds around 3:00 am; and interestingly enough as we walked with IV in arm I began to tell her about the goodness of Jesus and my faith, and the fact I knew I was going to be alright in spite of what the MRI results said!

I was discharged Saturday evening, the spirit of fear tried to overcome me after my discussion with the doctor that released me.  In the quiet of my bedroom, I began to ponder everything that had occurred the prescription drugs on my night stand, and I just felt confusion all around me; it was just a bit overwhelming.  I said a simple prayer and went to sleep.  In the middle of the night I heard my cell phone chirp announcing I had received a text message.  When I rose to check the message, I recalled before going to sleep I had responded to a very dear friend of mine and Sister in Christ’s message regarding the doctor’s results when I was discharged.

When I read her text message I began to smile, and I rose up in my bed and began to thank the Lord continuously.  Here is our conversation via text: 

My friend “Hey precious sister, I love you”  Psalm 103 – God has ransom me from death and heals all my diseases, I’m standing on this word from God knowing that both of us are healed, let’s talk in the morning”

  Small note my friend was just recently released from the hospital as well; she was battling blood clots in her lungs.    

My response text “Okay sweetie, they said I had a mini stroke and the MRI showed I have had six already.” 

My friend   “This is a Praise Report it confirms that you’ve had six victory reports already, that’s why there’s evidence of God promises to you, no weapon formed can prosper, Satan has to ask God for permission, it may form but!  It WON’T prosper”  I’m praising God with you!  As to his protection, I’m more encouraged than ever now!  Because of your victory!  Praise God!  THANK YOU JESUS!  Wow look at GOD~!”

I rose up out of my bed praising and thanking the Lord!  What encouragement in the Lord, what victory I truly had over the results that showed up on the tests the doctors took! 

I have been meditating on this all week as I recover from the whole ordeal and the drugs that were pumped into my system.  I have to think victoriously in spite of what my flesh may display first of all and secondly, I have to really absorb the fact that for every time oxygen and blood did not reach my brain properly God blessed that it was sufficient enough to not cause a major stroke that could have caused permanent damage and even then one can be healed!

It was indeed an eye opener of putting certain things in my life in perspective and what is really important.  I have also taking an inventory of what should truly be top priorities in my life.  As I prayed last night, the Holy Spirit gave me 2 Timothy 4: 1-5:  I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;  Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.  But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

So I am sharing this testimony and experience with my readers because I welcome your feedback and comments!  If you were in my shoes; what would be your conclusion of this entire experience?  I would like to also add when I prayed and received 2 Timothy; I felt like God was really trying to get my attention for a reason; and I asked him what was it all about. . . .

I also find it very interesting to experience this during the season of Thanksgiving!

Be blessed and I look forward to your feedback!

      Praise God for your testimony of God's faithfulness! He does respond to our faith! May your life continually be built on your faith and trust in Him and may His hand of healing and power be a continual testimony of His love, His mercy, and His goodness.

      I am always blessed when I read your writing Sister Jewel. "It is appointed unto man once to die" That appointment happens when God is done with you here, precious sister. He is not done with you yet, and until He is done with you, nothing can kill you, no weapon, illness, no matter what Dr's say. Make your time count while the Lord wants to use you here. After this life you will praise Him forever in glory. In fact you will be my neighbor and we will praise Him together because we are of the same blood and family. But until then you battle the flesh and Satan and be a good soldier for the Lord. I will pray for you and so will all your other friends and family. There is much for us to do and to be greatful for. Love you sister in Christ. Bob.
